Morel International Export Management Services objected to procurement procedures used by the Consumer Product Safety Commission for obtaining economic and environmental data and to the Commission's evaluation of Morel's proposal. Morel stated that: its proposal showed that it had personnel with the appropriate consumer product knowledge and capability of performing the work; its proposed subcontractors would provide quicker response than would be provided by employees; the solicitation did not identify the consumer products to be investigated; its proposal addressed the impact of standards on economic and environmental factors; it had geographic proximity to data sources; and the contract awardee was preselected. A review showed that the Commission's procedures were proper and that it properly determined that Morel did not offer the appropriate expertise and capabilities.
